Study Compares the Intelligence of Users of Different Web Browsers

A psychometric consulting firm named AptiQuant asked 100,000 people to take an online IQ test, and then correlated scores with the web browsers used to take them. The blue bars represent test results from 2006 and the red bars test results from 2011. The vertical axis represents IQ points. Link -via Geekologie

UPDATE: The story was a hoax. Thanks to commenter che.

It's a load of crap. Some people use more than one type of browser, for one thing.
I regularly use two. Sometimes it depends on the site I'm visiting.

Yes, that did sound snobbish. To be honest I don't really thing geeks are smarter. (How do you define geek anyway.) I was just trying to look for an explanation really. And I don't consider myself a geek either, unless not using IE counts.

You "geeks" are becoming incredible snobs. The average web surfer goes online, looks at some sites, and maybe leaves a comment. IE is fine for that. To equate the browser someone uses with their inteligence is, quite frankly, stupid and judgemental. Get over yourselves.
